In reading the literary rhetoric of the Book of Exodus Kürle uncovers new insights in the author’s purposes. The unique work undertakes to interpret the Book of Exodus as a whole in terms of its rhetorical aims. The approach is distinguished from traditional critical readings in focussing not on the origin of the texts, nor on the theological specifics of putative sources, but on the text understood as having a coherent rhetorical strategy. It is also distinguished from expressly theological readings of the book.

Kürle proceeds by considering Yahweh, Moses and Israel as ‘characters’ in the literary sense, and exploring how the text operates through them on its ‘implied readers’. Thus the particular focus is on the functional aspects of the text which direct the reading process and thus guide the reader in the perception of the ideas, concepts and stories presented.
